SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber – The Full Project

SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber.  The project is done and I’m not going to say much at all because 2-Tone and I want people to simply check the music:

Thank you


SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber

For each of The Classics exhibitions I enlisted the services of DJ 2-Tone Jones who created a mixtape that features music from that genre.

For JAZZ, since its the last of my Album Cover Art Exhibitions, I wanted to do some different things and the mixtape was one of them – enter SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber.

The idea stemmed from my interview of graphic designer Logan Mills who created a series of jazz inspired Wu-Tang album covers, dubbed Wu-Note.  One of my questions references the Beatles x Wu-Tang mixtape, which he created the album cover art for, and my line of questioning sorta asks him about a jazz x Wu-Tang mix project, which he goes to say that he’d be down to create the cover art for if one exists.

After receiving that info I hit up 2-Tone – he’s down, then I go back to Logan – he’s down, and SHAOLIN JAZZ is born.

Check out the first track – Astral C.R.E.A.M. (The Pharoah Jarel Beatdown remix). Listen here and download here.  The full length album will be out shortly.
